Hi Corsair Forums So I have a Corsair HX750 PSU and I noticed that the ATX 24 pin is solid on one end and split (20+4) on the other. I understand that typically, the split end of the cable goes into the motherboard, to allow for boards with 20pin sockets. However, with the HX750 it seems the other way round. The socket on the PSU looks like it's set up to take the 20+4 pin split. Why would this be and in what scenario would I need to only use one of the (20+4) split at the PSU end? See 3 pics here showing how I've connected the cable to both the motherboard and PSU as well as the empty ports on the PSU for reference. Many thanks for any expertise you're able to impart :) P.S I'm using a Maximus XI Hero motherboard.
Hello. This is the first computer I've completely assembled myself and I have two questions regarding the power supply cables. 1. Are there shorter (modular) cables that I can use with the RM650x? I'm using a small case and I'd prefer an ATX 24-pin cable with 2/3 or even half the size of the ones that came with the PSU. 2. Is it possible to get an ATX 24-pin cable without the small border around the connector that goes into the motherboard? The problematic border is the long one opposite the side that has the clip. I've highlighted the border in the following image, it is the same border but on the opposite side. http://imgur.com/a/pTWtl I'm yet to find such cable so I'm thinking of simply using a knife and cutting the border on that one side. The reason is that my motherboard has the RAM slots next to the cable, and this border is slightly pushing the RAM module. You can barely notice it but it is there and I fear this may cause problems in the long run when the system temperature gets high. Without this border on the side of the RAM module, there would be no pressure.
